New Forest Ice Cream uses Hubbard multi-compressor

Lymington, Hampshire, UK: New Forest Ice Cream has installed a Hubbard low-temperature, six-compressor refrigeration pack at its Lymington, Hampshire factory.

Specified by Set Point Services, the ECA qualifying system incorporates a heat recovery system, to convert compressor heat, an unavoidable by-product of all refrigeration equipment, into a readily usable source of heated water.

The multi compressor pack runs at -25°C and chills a 4,700 cubic metre, storage warehouse containing up to 1500 pallets of dairy and continental ice creams, sorbet and impulse range ice lollies, ice cream bars and cones.

Energy efficiency is important to New Forest Ice Cream. It has expanded production incorporating specific features to ensure the chiller store is maintained at the most efficient temperature, including an airlock style double door entry system.

Barry Bridel of Set Point Systems, New Forest Ice Cream’s refrigeration contractor said: “The move to larger premises required us to take a new approach to ensuring energy efficiency of their refrigeration and chilling plant. Which is why the Hubbard Products multi-compressor pack was such a good answer to our requirements. Not only is it highly efficient, but it’s ECA qualifying listing on the EPTL allowed my clients’ to benefit from the government’s improved capital allowance benefits for Carbon Trust qualified energy efficient refrigeration”.
